We always seem to get asked the same questions about living somewhat off grid in a motor home, to which the answers seem to spark a dozen more questions! So (to give our voices a rest!) here's the answers to our most frequently asked questions...

Here and There

Posted 5/5/2014

We have been gradually chipping away at our mountain of ‘To-do’ jobs left over from before the wedding. It was a mad dash to the finish to get Waki in a usable state to live in but unfortunately we ran out of time to make her pretty too! Every month that’s passed since the wedding seems to have rushed by in a flash, has it really been 6 months already?!!! 

Anyhow, to try and re-count what we’ve been up to so far, we’ve managed to install a battery monitor, put up a log shelf by the stove (as well as installing the stove itself but technically I did report on that already), paint the kitchen cupboard doors and the heater pipe box in front of the fridge that were still bare wood and fixed many things that had broken here and there.

We also recently gave Waki a service before heading to the seaside for the Bank Holiday weekend and invested in some nice new tyres all round. The trouble with poking around for problems though is that you will always find them, so we have more tasks to add to the To-Do list!

It was a nice trip overall, it's nice to just have a change of scenery - especially when it's beautiful! The weather was relatively kind to us and we explored a little of North Norfolk, wandered some beautiful beaches and foraged wild Alexanders to go with our BBQ dinner before carrying on up to meet the family at Skegness for Sunday.

Time definitely flies when you're busy, and we've both been very busy with our various commission jobs as well as our usual part time morning shifts.

When I've been taking a break from painting I've also been trying to tidy up this website and fill it up with all manner of interesting content (well, I think it's interesting - you'll have to tell me otherwise!).

Recent additions to the site include our FAQ page in the About us section (in answer to the myriad of questions we get asked by everyone we meet), some improved photos here and there (you'll have to spot the difference!) and some more products we love in the Recommended Products pages.

I remember scouring the internet for any kind of tips and advice when we were considering buying Waki to start with so it's nice to think that now we might be able to help other people who may be looking for a way out of the rat race. As usual thank you for reading and supporting us at The Waki Way! :)


We really would love to hear from you so get on over to Facebook and like us for more regular updates and photos, and to be able to post any comments and questions you might have for us.

About us:

My name is Sarah and in 2011 my husband Ryan and I decided to buy and re-fit an old motor home - we named it Waki and now live in it full time in the UK!

We live neither on or off-grid, rather somewhere in between, and are not the first and I dare say not the last to choose this way of life... read more>>
